Poems of Mr. John Milton, Both English and Latin, Compos'd at several times[edit]

Hi. I noticed that you are adding works from Milton. As there is already a scan of the work you are referring as source, I have settled up a Main page pointing to the index so that you can proofread the text directly and transclude it. See my work on Upon the Circumcision as an example. If you have any questions or need help, just leave a post here. Bye--Mpaa (talk) 00:56, 24 March 2012 (UTC)

Hi. A heads-up … This edition of the work is currently being questioned (see my talk page). Anyhow the suggestion to look for scans and transclude for there is still valid. Keep a look at my talk page if interested in the discussion of the version of the book. --Mpaa (talk) 10:05, 24 March 2012 (UTC)
Index name is sorted out now :-)--Mpaa (talk) 18:27, 25 March 2012 (UTC)

I just reverted one of your edits as soul is there to indicate the first word of the next page. Do not know why they printed like that. But if you add it, when transcluded you will see it repeated. Bye--Mpaa (talk) 21:03, 26 March 2012 (UTC)

The mysterious Header toggle button[edit]

When proofreading in the Page: namespace and one has their toolbar turned on [Gadgets | Editing (tab) | Editing toolbar (checkbox)], one will see the button Button category plus.png, and clicking it toggles the header/footer on and off. In this space we put the relevant components for top and bottoms of pages, usually by use of the template {{RunningHeader}}, so for example {{RunningHeader|Stanhope|3|Stanhope}} produces


I personally have my header/footer set to open in the Page: namespace and I achieved this by activating that option in my Gadgets. To also note that at this time, the use of the newer Wikieditor toolbar (Editing tab in My preferences) does not yet display all the tools that we utilise for proofreading. If you turn it off in your preferences you access the older toolbar and more editing options. — billinghurst sDrewth 13:24, 24 March 2012 (UTC)
